■Hello Everybody! This is your Club Insider Publisher and Tribal Leader Since 1993 checking in with Club Insider Edition #308!
■Is America a great country, or what? One of the things that makes America truly great is... and you may have guessed what I'm going to write here is FOOTBALL! This month, the college football season will kick off on August 24 with the Miami Hurricanes squaring off against the University of Florida Gators in Orlando, Florida. My lawyer brother, whom I refer to as GATOR DAVE, went to undergraduate and law school at Florida. So, naturally, I must put up with his Gatorism, but I don't think I can hold that against him on August 24th. I'm an N.C. State Football Fan because I went to school and played football there. Living in Georgia, and because my son, JUSTIN, graduated from the University of Georgia, I'm also a Bulldog Fan. But, for the upcoming August 24th Miami vs. Florida game, I'm going to root for the Florida Gators to beat the Hurricanes! When you finish reading these Norm's Notes, be sure to glance to the right to read my "Insider Speaks" editorial on Page #5 entitled: The JOY of Football! And, STAY TUNED, Folks!
■You probably noticed the obituary on Page #3, and I'm very sad to report that FRANK EISENZIMMER, who was a great American, and one of our industry's greatest early club pioneers, the husband of MYRNA; the Father of my friend, MARK EISENZIMMER; daughters, KRISTY WOODCOCK (MICHAEL) and KAREN BUTZER (ROD); 10 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren, has passed away. Before Frank was a club man with his and Mark's three great Cascade Athletic Clubs in Gresham and Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington, Frank was a fireman and a builder. His story is truly an amazing one, and I sit here with sadness in my heart for his loss. See the Obituary starting on Page #3. May FRANK EISENZIMMER Rest In Peace.
■Thanks to BIG JOHN McCARTHY, and the folks at the Professional Tennis Registry (PTR), for informing us about the passing of DENNIS Van der MEER. I didn't know Dennis, but his reputation and fame in the tennis world preceded him, as he was the Founder, former Chairman and President of the Professional Tennis Registry. Dennis died with his wife, PAT, by his side. See the Press Release starting on Page #3. May DENNIS VAN DER MEER Rest In Peace.
